"John Hogg (1833-1886), Protestant missionary in Egypt. Hogg was born in the mining village of Penston, Scotland. From the age of nine, he worked in a coal mine as a pit boy, but an accident set him free to study. An evangelical conversion, followed by the death of an elder brother, convinced him of a missionary vocation, and in 1856 he accepted a call to Alexandria, in Egypt, in connection with the Scottish Society for the Conversion of the Jews. Thereafter Hogg worked mostly as an educational and literary missionary out of Asyut. He was a firm believer in the establishment of independent, self-sustaining and self-propagating churches. He was a fine Arabic scholar, a notable personality, and a tireless preacher, translator, and administrator. Of his twelve children, the eldest, Hope Waddell Hogg (1863-1912) carried on his fathers work in Egypt; Alfred George Hogg and Laurence Alexander Hogg become missionaries in India. John Hogg died in Asyut." - Anderson, Biographical Dictionary of Christian Missions.
